Join Shon Faye live in London as she discusses her urgent Sunday Times bestselling book The Transgender Issue with journalist Moya Lothian-McLean.

Trans people in Britain today have become a culture war 'issue'.  The subjects of a toxic and increasingly polarized 'debate' which generates reliable controversy for newspapers and talk shows. Hear Shon discuss how we are having the wrong conversation and denying trans people a meaningful voice, exploring what it means to be trans in a transphobic society.

Don’t miss your chance to hear Shon’s call for justice and solidarity between all marginalised people and minorities. Trans liberation, as she sees it, goes to the root of what our society is and what it could be; it offers the possibility of a more just, free and joyful world for all of us.

Shon will be in conversation with Moya Lothian-McLean. Moya is a journalist covering politics and society. She's currently a Contributing Editor at Novara Media and fronts the Broccoli Productions podcast Human Resources.
